The public health field is rapidly shifting to incorporate the new realities of climate impacts. From extreme heat waves to the growing prevalence of diseases, issues with water quality, trauma from storms and allergy and asthma triggers, there are many challenges to address. While we are all vulnerable to this changes, low income communities and communities of color face disproportionate risks.  Speakers will explore some of the issues and then panelists will dive into what is happening on the ground to address heat and mental health and how the built environment can support resilient wellness.

Join us for the next Climate Adaptation Forum to learn about how climate change is impacting public health.
